Well yes, but no software has support for such a construction, but that
would be really cool though.

I still have one remaining issue, after inspecting some of my
profiles, I noticed
the single shaper curve can be a bit bumpy.  On most photo's I've checked so
far this does not seem to have a visual consequence.

However, is there a way to smooth the single shaper curve? In other words, not
to change the general shape, but only to remove smaller deviations...
